Be a Professional Coach

“It is an eye-opener,” said Mohd Adnan Abdullah, one of the participants in the Coach Induction Course held on Sunday 8 February 2009 at the National Training Centre.

He added: “I realize that there is more to just sharing of skills in coaching. There is so much responsibility. As coaches, we represent our clubs, our sport and the Singapore Taekwondo Federation. We have to be a credit.”

42 coaches attended the course. And they learned, among other things, that the best legacy a coach could leave was the life lessons he or she taught his or her students. Was it easy? They knew from case study that it was a challenge when their job and popularity were at stake. But they also knew the direction that they should take if they wanted to impart the right values.

It is now up to the following who attended the course to decide if they dare to take up the professional pass which is a symbol of their willingness to undertake the full obligations of a coach.
